Tim & Krista: Rapid City Wedding Photographer

Tim and Krista, I can honestly say that your hearts are among the kindest I’ve ever met. I’m so happy for you as you begin this chapter together. Thank you for asking me to be a small part of it. It was truly a pleasure and honor. Enjoy a few of my favorites! —js


What was the most memorable moment from your wedding day?  

Krista Says: Our First Look without a doubt. The entire day was an amazing experience, but the First Look stands out as most memorable.

Tim Says: Our First Look – just seeing Krista.

Jessica’s Take: During the pastor’s blessing over the meal, he thanked God for making Tim for Krista. I was watching them through my lens when he said it, and with those words Krista’s face revealed the sweetest, most genuine smile. She reached out, eyes closed in prayer, and grabbed Tim’s hand to hold. Their happiness was apparent throughout the entire day, but that moment for me was what wedding days are all about.

What was your favorite detail of the wedding day?  

Krista Says: It’s not easy to pick just one! Everything turned out beautifully. Every detail came together to make it a perfect day! Our wedding venue was such a beautiful setting and set the stage for everything else.

Tim Says: The setting of the wedding was perfect. I enjoyed watching everyone have a good time.

Jessica’s Take: I loved the mix of pinks in Krista’s bouquet. It was vibrant and feminine and elegant at the same time.

Any advice for other couples planning a wedding?

Krista Says: Try not to get overwhelmed and stressed out. Easier said than done, I know! But just remember to enjoy every step of the process.

Tim Says: Try to stay as calm and relaxed as you can through the planning process. Just remember that, at the end of the wedding day, you’ll be married and that is what is most important. Everything else is just details.

What’s the best part about being married so far?

Krista Says: A married friend told me it would feel as though God is giving you a big hug and that is exactly how I feel. I have felt a sense of peace ever since our wedding day.

Tim Says: The best part has been knowing that I get to spend the rest of my life with my best friend. We have become even closer since the wedding.
